For students developing a DJ mix or preparing for GCSE we offer this downloadable “Lead Sheet”. This can be used to detail all the steps involved and takes the place of a musical score.
For teachers trying to ascertain the level of demand of a students’ work we offer this assessment matrix. It should help understand how DJing is comparable to traditional instruments.

For any school teacher wanting to deliver an introduction to mixing or a great way to teach how to count to a musical pulse, here is our original session plan available to view or download.

For school staff interested in delivering a team-working drum-circle style introduction to scratching here is our original “Beat Team” session plan available to view or download.

Tutorial videos for teachers .
Below are pre-prepared playlists of videos made by us specifically to support our CPD delivery for secondary school staff. The videos themselves cannot replace person to person CPD and we suggest no one tries to learn how to DJ just from these.
Although these videos were not designed for pupils, some teachers have found certain videos useful. If you feel they are suitable then feel free to use them but please bear in mind that was not our intention.
